SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - Sioux City community members gathered Thursday to say goodbye to a local television icon.

Friends and family gathered to say goodbye to Jim Henry, host of Canyon Kid's Corner for 30 years in Siouxland.

He also hosted Around Siouxland on KTIV for two decades.

As those who gathered celebrated the life and impact of Jim as a father, husband, and mentor to many, several people reminisced on his love of his job in entertainment.

"I think he just loved the contact with people and entertaining people. He just loved that, it was his life. It just fascinated me that he could just sit there and carry on a conversation with anybody about any subject. He knew everything," Richard Kleinberg,  said.

"He had a great big smile on his face. He loved what he did for the kids of Siouxland," Patricia LeClair said.

KTIV's Kayah Gausman was at Thursday's services.

She'll have the full story of those who gathered together to remember Jim Henry Thursday night on News 4 at 6.
